Michael L. Carrier Golf Tournament

On behalf of the Michael L. Carrier Golf Tournament Committee, Michael’s family, and The First Tee of Harrisonburg, we would like to thank you for your continued support of our 2017 tournament. Despite the inclement weather, it turned out to be a great success again this year! In all, we raised $30,348 in sponsorships and silent auction proceeds. In addition, $10,598 of in-kind donations and door prizes were received! After expenses, $25,125 was given to The First Tee of Harrisonburg.

For the first time, we were able to provide a $1,000 Michael L. Carrier Scholarship to a local high school student. Erika Marroquin was the recipient of the scholarship. Erika is a senior at Turner Ashby High School and will attend James Madison University in the fall. Your contributions made it possible to provide this award. Thank You!!

Your participation and support of the Michael L. Carrier Golf Tournament means a lot and will continue to help a young person build character and life skills that can be used in school, at home and in the community.

Please save-the-date for the 2018 tournament to be held on April 21, 2018.  We sincerely hope we can count on your support next year!!


In April 2013, The Michael L. Carrier Golf Tournament was established by the Carrier family to honor and remember Michael for his love of golf and also to support the mission of The First Tee.  One of Michael’s favorite courses was Heritage Oaks, where he and his wife Linda played often.

Each year, the tournament committee works very hard to raise money to contribute to The First Tee of Harrisonburg.  During the past five years, over $115,000 in proceeds, has been given directly to The First Tee of Harrisonburg.

This tournament provides good food, fun, fellowship and lots of competition to all who attend.  Michael’s beloved father and mother, Dr. Ronald and Mrs. Edith Carrier are the celebrities of the event and enjoy riding around the course greeting the golfers.  Prizes are awarded for the longest drive, closest to the pin and lowest scores.  Lunch is provided as well as door prizes and silent auction items.

The Carrier family deeply appreciates your continued support and generosity and we look forward to seeing you at the 6th Annual Michael L. Carrier Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Heritage Oaks Golf Course.

We at The First Tee of Harrisonburg would like to say THANK YOU” to the tournament committee:  Dr. Ronald Carrier, Linda Carrier, Dale Hulvey, Jim Barnes, Susan Barnes, Jenny Lyons, Dick Lyons, Christina Updike, Dan Nardi, Garrett King and Jeff Simmons.
